ECU to host Summer Jobs and Internships Fair

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Many ECU students will be looking ahead into their futures Thursday with the first Summer Jobs and Internship Fair of 2018.

ECU Career Services is bringing more than 50 employers on campus to talk with students about job and internship opportunities, including Enterprise, Northwestern Mutual, Peace Corps, Peter Millar, YMCA, Eastern 4-H Center, UNC Coastal Studies Institute, Bethelwoods Camp and Conference Center, Busch Gardens Williamsburg & Water Country USA, Beacon Hill Staffing Group, and the Autism Society of N.C.

The event covers all majors and focuses on meaningful employment opportunities for students over the summer.

"Internships are extremely valuable learning experiences no matter the academic major. In many cases, nontraditional settings are equally as valuable as an internship that mirrors an academic discipline," said Dr. Deb Jordan, professor and department chair for the recreation and leisure studies program at ECU.

Those interested in attending should dress in casual attire, bring their ECU 1Card and resume, and research the employers who will be attending.

The fair runs from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. at the ECU Student Recreation Center.
